Buckwheat Pumpkin Spice Chocolate Chip Muffins

Everybody loves pumpkin this time of year and I am no different. I think what I love most about pumpkin recipes, though, is the spice blend.

Pumpkin Pie in a Jar

I was trying to think of a delicious Fall recipe and I knew two things. I wanted to use pumpkin and my favorite sweetener, maple syrup. News of a contest put on by Pure Canadian Maple Syrup also crossed my path, inspiring me to get into the kitchen and create something to tempt any taste […]

4 Recipes to Banish Your Breakfast Boredom

Breakfast can be a toughie, especially if you are avoiding certain foods. Many of my clients have allergies to either gluten, dairy, or egg.
